Big Stretch (Wild Ginger)
In order to stimulate better digestion, the Cherokee used a tea made from wild ginger roots. A mild wild ginger tea can also be used in the case of upset stomach, intestinal gas or colic while a strong wild ginger tea is used to remove any secretion from the lungs.
The Meskwaki, another native tribe, used the stems of wild ginger to cure an earache.
You can use the rootstocks from wild ginger to replace regular ginger in your kitchen and its flowers can be used to flavor your favorite dish.
